Phd: Seismology-based volcano monitoring techniques

Development of seismology-based volcano monitoring techniques

Victoria University of Wellington
Level: PhD
Closing date: 1 November 2020

This is part of a wider “volcanism theme” with the ultimate aim to produce short-term forecasts and long-term probabilistic hazard estimates for New Zealand volcanoes.  The theme involves Research Institution GNS Science and several New Zealand universities.

Well-recorded eruptions in 1995/1996, 2006, 2007, 2012, 2016 and 2019 will serve as testing grounds for the new techniques. The project will develop and test several techniques that have been proposed to monitor volcanoes using seismic data.  They will be tested on existing and soon-to-be-collected data that recorded eruptions on White Island/Whakaari, Ruapehu, and Tongariro volcanoes as well as other data sets.
